To say that Hunting and fishing is in Scott Brandon’s blood does not do justice to the impact the outdoors has had on his life. At a very early age, Scott’s Dad Cecil Brandon (a true Southern Sportsman), began taking him along on his weekly hunting and fishing adventures. Cecil loved to hunt quail and ducks and would put Scott into his old Ford station wagon early on Saturday mornings, not returning until well after dark.
Scott’s earliest memories of hunting were formed in such famed places as Cane Island, Cecil’s duck club in the famed Santee Delta and Oakland Gun Club the last great wild quail club in the south. Armed with a single-shot .410, Scott was deadly on quail, ducks, squirrels and the occasional rabbit. He can still remember the first quail and first duck he ever shot, with his Dad right by his side.
In 1996, Scott’s hunting life took a dramatic turn. His sister had married a Texan with a lease on the King Ranch. While visiting with his brother-in-law that Christmas, Scott fell in love with bow hunting. So, from 1996 through 2010, Scott was obsessed with big whitetails. In 1998, Scott was fortunate enough to get his own low fence South Texas lease where he began to manage extensively for trophy whitetails. During those years, Scott harvested over 20 P&Y deer with his largest being a 178” non-typical and his last being a 176” Typical.
In addition to big whitetails, Scott has been fortunate enough to harvest P&Y elk and pronghorn antelope in Wyoming and P&Y Mule deer in Utah. In 2008, Scott and his son Hunter went to New Zealand where they both took giant SCI Red Stags.
In addition to hunting, Scott is an accomplished fly fisherman and enjoys spending time in the same Santee Delta waters that he grew up on chasing trout, redfish and the occasional tarpon. His marketing company is well-known for building outdoor lifestyle brands and he has a long-standing friendship and connection with Chris Williams. Today he enjoys spending time with his family, who all love the outdoors as much as he does.
